First estate agent I've used to sell a house and I can honestly say it's been a relatively stress free process thanks to Hunters Barnsley.
I've dealt with 4 different members of staff. Laura, Daniel, Robert and Zack. All have been really helpful and reassuring throughout the whole process.
Thanks guys. Would 100% recommend you anyone that asked.
They were terrible. The contact was so poor and it took days to get a call back.
We had 50/50 viewings and no shows and they brought round people who were never interested in buying to make it look like they were doing more,
They changed the pricing 4 times in 3 weeks, none of which was successful.
In the end I paid £150 to terminate my contract - best thing I ever did. Hunters failed to sell in 6 weeks. It went on with another agent and sold in 5 days!
Do not use.
We very nearly used a local company to sell our property but Cornerstone were selling a house we wanted to buy so thought we would get them in for a quote. James was excellent from start to finish, very genuine and professional. He was competitively priced and the house sale went extremely smoothly. We ended up selling our house over the asking price after just over a week of being on the market. We couldn’t recommend Cornerstone anymore and would definitely use them again.
Use Cornerstones! If you are selling in North Leeds area I cant recommend these guys enough. excellent attention to detail. James - backed up by Zoe and Justin work tirelessly for you, chasing up vendors, purchasers and solicitors and providing advice where necessary. Highly recommended.
10/10 recommendation for Your Move Barnsley!! I cannot recommend Emma Fields enough to anyone. She has helped tonnes through my very complicated house marketing/sale. She made sure that she kept in contact throughout offering me advice and support and giving me an update. Nothing is too much, she would do anything to help. Always happy to help and very polite. I will deffinitely sell any house in the future with Your Move. Thank you doesn’t really cut it but I appreciate it so much.
Please for god sake, do not use this agent.
They make out at the beginning that they have a load of staff to look after your property, but in the end up it turned out to be a fraction of that, and if one of them was off sick you were going nowhere.
When the first buyer fell through we wanted to get out of the contract because of there incompetence but they wouldn't let us.But when we signed up at the beginning we were told we could if they mucked up.
Also don't expect them to ring you up to tell you how things are progressing, we had to visit the office about 5 times to gee them up. It maybe quicker and easier to make your own board and sell it yourself.
You will not find a better estate agent.
Right from the first contact with Whitegates, Barnsley we felt that we were in good hands. All staff were experienced and paid attention to detail. Our property to sell was priced correctly for the market, photos and internet write-up were accurate and well presented. Our property was sold within 2 weeks of Whitegates placing it on the market. We were kept informed throughout the process. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend Whitegates to anyone wanting to sell their property.
We have had a professional relationship with Whitegates, Barnsley for the past 10 years as landlords and more latterly during the sale of our property. Terri, Graham, Debbie and the team have been ‘first class’ throughout. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Whitegates, Barnsley to any prospective landlords or anyone selling their property. Thank you for all your support.
After or sale fell through and we decided not to sell, gates estates refused to give us or upfront payment of £1100 back saying it was non refundable. This wasn’t mentioned at the signing of contract only this was a deal which was used to compete with the internet agents which had to be paid upfront. The contract even says refundable after 21 days notice and nothing about no refunds. The matter will be dealt with through the small claims court. A very stupid act from Ryan gates as i doubt gates estates will be trusted in birdwell hoyland and hoyland common by the time I’ve done.
